Fantastical, Political presents works by five contemporary New England artists: Dave Cole, Cynthia Consentino, Mohamad Hafez, Dinorá Justice, and Joo Lee Kang. Their absurd and extravagant integration of decorative techniques—marbling, blue-and-white ceramic traditions, and architectural ornament, among others—will inspire you to look past decorative appeal to uncover political content. In this exhibition, the “fantastical” is leveraged as political commentary, stretching far beyond themes related to governmental affairs.
Fantastical, Political has been supported by a grant from the Artist’s Resource Trust.
